The fingers danced
a skittering across russet wood
and sweeping over vibrating strings.
The body swayed
as hand dared the bow to plunge.
Sound reverberated up the spine
lacing edges of consciousness
with tepid trills of emotion.
Scales stretched to painted sky
deftly defying sunset hues
with the blue tones from somber moon.
Even distant plants could feel the echoes
soaring deep into the night.
They pierced the brightest stars
with an onslaught so great
that the burning orbs dulled in comparison
and fell from their trembling orbits
As the highnotes screeched
releasing long-rested dust
to float in freedom
across music filled skies
and wonder about
